Police have launched a homicide investigation into the death of a 69-year-old man after he was assaulted on Sunday morning in the suburb of Māngere East, Auckland.

The man sustained critical injuries from the assault at his home. He was transported to Middlemore Hospital, but sadly passed away last night.

A 58-year-old man was charged with wounding with intent in relation to the assault and is due to appear in Manukau District Court today.

“The investigation into this matter is ongoing and further charges may be laid,” a Police spokesperson said.

“Police can confirm however that nobody else is being sought in relation to the death.”
